8 9 J U LY 2 0 1 5 | O U T P A T I E N TS U R G E R Y. N E T I love playing with new stuff, and there was plenty to play with at this year's American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons conference in San Diego. I was like a kid in a candy store, only I was looking at eye drops instead of gumdrops and lasers instead of licorice. Here's some of what caught my eye. OSM Innovation abounds in the ASCRS exhibit hall. T. Hunter Newsom, MD | Tampa, Fla. 11 Hot Products for Ophthalmology Dr. Newsom (hunter@newsomeye.net) is a cataract and refractive surgeon and founder of the Newsom Eye & Laser Center in Tampa and Sebring, Fla. Photos by Jim Burger. TrueVision TrueGuide v10 The TrueGuide is really 3 tools in one. There's pre-operative informa- tion management and planning, an intra-operative microscope, and over- lay and dynamic customization. The heads-up display is helpful from an ergonomic standpoint, and it lets the whole OR see exactly what you're doing. The 3D visualization is tremendous. It also stores a tremendous amount of information — just about everything that might possibly be helpful. All in all, it's definitely fun to play with and it's going to pro- vide a benefit when it comes to astigmatism location. z HEADS UP Dr. Newsom test-drives the 3D- enabled TrueGuide com- puter-guidance system.
